You know the Windows phone 7 launch is near when even Microsoft starts leaking pictures via twitter.Â Microsoft Netherlands recently tweeted this picture of the LG E900, supposedly called to be called the LG Optimus 7 ( a name most of our readers approve of I see).
The picture also reveals some additional tiles, including a Panorma shot, media sharing and most tellingly a Vodafone 360 tile, although Microsoft did indicate in a follow-up tweet that the presence of the tile does not necessarily mean the phone will come to Vodafone, as it may just be a â€œtest environmentâ€.
The picture also confirms the device does not have the same odd button placement of the LG C900, with all the keys more or less on the same level.
Having had a closer and clearer look at the handset, the device does appear pretty impressive, especially if its as thin as shown in the video.
